Clear skies have arrived for much of the country on Saturday, but some parts haven't been able to escape showers.

There is "fine weather for most of the North Island today, but a low-pressure system drives showers into eastern areas," said Te Ratonga Tirorangi/MetService.

"Drizzly cloud" is currently hanging over the east coast of the South Island, notably Canterbury, south Marlborough, and Southland.

Otago can expect some drizzle on Saturday evening.

Meanwhile, "the rest of the motu is in for a sunny day," the forecaster said.

Sunday looks settled for most, but cloud and a few showers will remain for the North Island's east coast, including Gisborne and Hawke's Bay.

By Monday, the low-pressure system hanging off the east of the North Island should move away, allowing fine weather to return, said WeatherWatch.

Some in the west of the country may still get some cloud at times on Monday and Tuesday.

"Despite it being mostly dry we can sometimes have isolated light showers or drizzle patches in the coastal west, caused by anticyclonic gloom," WeatherWatch added.
